‘Another Long March' is the first survey in the West of conceptual and installation art, presenting eighteen artists from the leading Chinese art centres: Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Guangzhou. In comparison to Political Pop and Cynical Realist art in the post-1989 art scene, conceptual art produced by Chinese artists received relatively less coverage in the West. The accompanying essays in this exhibition catalogue, written by noted scholars and art critics, offer an insightful study and analysis of the development of Chinese conceptual art in the post-1989 period. Biographical information of participating artists is also included.

Exhibiting Contemporary Chinese Art

Within our collections there are pockets of primary and secondary materials documenting significant modes of exhibition making within and outside China. Often, exhibitions within this geographical context serve as experimental platforms for exploring art display, curatorial models, and incubating new forms of art practices. AAA locates, preserves, and makes accessible valuable material surrounding contemporary Chinese art from artists, curators, and art professionals. This section highlights these materials and related ephemera.
